A huge monument of King Rama 1 astride the back of an elephant. Probably the most impressive welcome to a city I’ve seen so far. Worth a visit and a close look.

Stoped of here quickly to pay my respects after a long hot day . It was evening time and I would definitely recommend about 19:00 or later to visit as it seemed so peaceful, yet it is set at a busy junction.

So if you're into roundabouts, this is for you. Actually, it is worth seeing, occasionally religious ceremonies are held here. It's called the 'Chang Roundabout" in Buriram.
